'Responsible leaders of the three parties will be part of it (coordination committee on NPR),' Thackeray said.

'I won't let anyone snatch the right of any citizens of Maharashtra. I am very clear on this,' he said, when asked about differences in the ruling alliance over implementation of NPR in the state.

On NCP minister Nawab Malik's recent announcement that there will be five per cent quota for Muslims in education in Maharashtra, Thackeray said the issue hasn't come before him yet.

'The issue of five per cent quota for Muslims has not come to me officially till now. We have yet to decide about our stand on it,' he said.

On Modi's announcement that he was thinking of quiting social media, Thackeray said, 'He (Modi) is big brother. I won't comment on it.'
